Comcast sponsoring citywide cleanup

Would you be willing to help replace trees in Pioneer Park, improve the Bonneville Shoreline Trail or perhaps perform clean-up at Willow Park? Those are just a few of the many projects needing attention during this year’s Comcast Cares Day, a citywide day of service coming up on Saturday, April 21. Comcast Utah’s public relations director Ray Child says volunteers of all ages are needed to work from 8 a.m. to 12 noon and the projects are designed to accommodate the needs of every volunteer. On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Monday, Child said every volunteer receives some “thank you” items. “A light breakfast, I’m talking donuts, milk and juice and that sort of thing,” said Child. “They get a t-shirt, they also get a Kentucky Fried Chicken lunch. People really seem to like that one. “And on behalf of every volunteer that comes out that day a significant personal grant will be made this year to the Willow Park Zoo.” Child says last year approximately $65,000 in personal grants were donated back to the benefiting organizations. This year the Willow Park Zoo is in great financial need. Child says Comcast is teaming up with Logan City to make the day successful. For information or to volunteer, call Deb Harvey at 716-9244.
